India Overtakes US, Brazil In New COVID-19 Cases A
About 5.2 lakh new Coronavirus cases have been reported across the country in just 11 days of August. While the worst-affected nation by COVID-19, the US has reported 4,93,376 cases over the last 10 days and second-most affected country Brazil has recorded 3,69,284 cases during the last 10 days.

The figures show that India has topped globally in terms of new cases. India accounts for 20% of new global cases.

Last Sunday, India's share of COVID-19 deaths in the world was 21% and on August 9, a record 1000 deaths were reported across the country. That is, about 42 COVID-19 deaths every hour. According to the European CDC, India recorded more deaths than the US and Brazil on August 11, but there is still no serious discussion about the virus in the country.

The health ministry’s daily press conference is no longer regular and the central government is busy in other works.

It is important to know here that 18% of the world's population lives in India, which is not yet reached the COVID-19 peak. It is a developing country where health infrastructure and essential services are not as strong as developed countries.

Even though 18 percent of the world's population lives in India, but India's GDP is only 8 percent of the world's GDP. In easy language, people are more and money is less. Its direct effect is also seen to see how India's health service is collapsing. The condition of villages and towns has gone from bad to worse.

The number of doctors in government hospitals is very less, the expensive treatment in private hospitals is outside the capacity of the poor and lower-middle-class.

According to the World Health Organisation, there should be a doctor per thousand population, but on this scale the health system of the country does not last anywhere. According to the report of the National Health Profile for 2018, there is only one government doctor on the population of more than 11,000 in the country. Overall, India is caught in a cycle of pandemic from which it seems very difficult to get out.
